Insert "2009, Mighty Fine" Rhyme Here
I was at the mall earlier, on a furious mission for both a pair of jeans and a new planner (it was a complete failure on both counts AND it was freezing cold AND I went to get Mentos and they charged me $1.75, which was highway robbery AND it got the Mentos commercial song stuck in my head) and I was looking at the calendar kiosk for the latter, and out of the corner of my eye, in between a calendar about Ireland and one about One Tree Hill (any hope of organization goes by the wayside after the first of the year), I glimpsed a calendar and said, out loud, "Is that SONNY?!"
And it was! How did I not know about the Hot Guys of ABC Daytime 2009 Calendar?
That's the official name of said calendar, by the way. The people in charge of this stringent adherence to truth in advertising standards may want to have a talk with their soap-promo-making brethren.
I am not going to quibble with any of the men contained therein, but I will take issue with how spectacularly shoddy the entire calendar is. Did they make it with MS Paint? I understand that economic times are tough, but stapling a few recycled publicity shots together and calling it a calendar is pretty sad. Half of them have plain white backgrounds that just look like high school senior portraits and blank-eyed facial expressions in keeping with the senior portrait theme, and then Kamar de los Reyes went all Cinemax on everybody and I just don't understand any of it, except that it proves that ABC Daytime is terrible at everything that it does.
